When I was a kid I remember hearing my folks talk about "The big flood of 1960" or "The wind storm of 1965", it goes on and on. We'll I have one for them now......The Ice Storm of 2012. Boy did we get hit! I think there was over an inch of ice on my car that day, work was postponed until 10am, but I called and said I was not driving 40 minutes on ice, wasn't going to happen. The huge trees in our yard and all around us were covered in ice. During the day you could hear random branches snap and then fall. That evening is when ours couldn't take the weight of the ice any longer and started snapping and breaking. The first one to fall made a huge snap, just like gun fire, my husband and I were in the living room, looked
at each other and braced for the hit. That one landed right by the front door,
missing the house by inches.
